Do It Yourself – Website Tutorials
Step #1 Get a Domain and Hosting (note – I’ll earn a small commission and you’ll earn a discount when you use this link): https://createaprowebsite.com/hosting
A domain name is just the address for your website, and hosting is what allows you to rent space on the internet, fill it with all of your text and pictures, and then publish your website.
Hosting is 100% necessary if you want to own your own website. The downside to a free website is that you wouldn’t own your domain name (it will probably be something like Yourwebsite.squarepsace.com) and you’d also have lots of limitations on customizing your site and the ability to monetize it.
That’s why we will be getting our own hosting plan with HostGator so that you will own 100% of your website.
Step #2 Install WordPress
WordPress is a free online software that you can use to customize your website. It’s the world’s most popular website builder, powering over 30% of all websites on the internet today.
Step #3 Add a Theme
We will be using the Ocean WP Theme in this tutorial.
Step #4 Install Plugins
-Elementor Page Builder
